The former India captain Ganguly posted a tweet and wrote that nothing comes close to a 'hard-fought' Test series. "Cricket at its best...Nothing can beat a well-fought test series. The one in Australia and now this one. The most skillful form of cricket ..@BCCI @ICC," he tweeted.

India and England both have won 1 match each in the series before the fourth Test. The fifth Test match of the series will be played in Manchester from September 10.

Team India had earlier registered a historic Test series win in Australia by 2-1 in the Border Gavaskar Trophy. They later went on to defeat England at home by 3-1 to seal the Test series this year.
